West Norfolk RSPCA appeals for help to home devoted puppies

Have your say

Could you provide a loving home for these two little abandoned puppies?

Rosa and Laura have become completely devoted to each other and Eau Brink RSPCA rehoming centre is desperate to find them a new forever home together.

Penny Skate, centre manager, said: “They need someone who is quite young and active themselves as they need lots of walks and lots of activity. An individual, couple or family would be fine so long as they are at home most of the time. They just need to be out now and getting socialised as part of a loving situation.

“We don’t want them sitting here over Christmas. That would be tragic.”

The pair were abandoned on a river bank near to Outwell in October when they were only a few weeks old and should not have been away from their mother.

The dog warden was alerted and took them to a vet for emergency treatment before passing them on to the rehoming centre.

Mrs Skate said: “When they came to us they were very underweight and generally in a very poor condition.”

A volunteer from the centre took the two weakest puppies but sadly one of them could not be saved. He had a digestive condition and was very unwell.

The three girls all made it through and one of them found a new home. Since then Rosa and Laura have got well together and become the best of friends.

The pups, thought now to be about 10 weeks old, are crossbreed, possibly Jack Russel/Pugs, but certainly a small breed.

If they cannot be homed together the centre will have to consider allowing them to be separated.

The centre currently has more than 20 dogs looking for a home and will soon be launching its Christmas appeal to provide toys and treats for them.
